The case here is that I have to use Smart HTTP because we employ SSO
which works with apache, as our user management works this way. We
have a quite a crowd of developers and access to projects gets managed
within this frame. It seems also to me that speed penalty by using SSL
+ Smart HTTP against GIT or SSH protocol is minimal. Assigning user
name and password to developer is a much easier way to manage them, in
contrast to public key management. I imagine that different scenarios
would play rather better in another environments, but in this case
HTTP is preferred to us.
